About the Owner
My husband and I bought the apartments many years ago, as we both love all aspects of Italy and wanted to enjoy an early retirement in the sun but without being in an highly commercial village but within easy reach of good social amentites, we continue to enjoy the culture the food the weather and most of all the people, in spite of our lack of the Italian language from very early on we were accepted into the local community and have wonderful neighbours that made us feel that we have been part of their family forever. Yes, we feel lucky and privileged to be in our happy space, My husband is a painter and enjoys the detail of wonderful architecture and landscapes, whatever season the light is always of interest.

Had an early break in May and found this lovely apartment on a private road in the hills above Lake Trasimeno with wonderful views and amazing sunsets. The Lake is like a beach resort in the Umbrian countryside. The apartment is very spacious and well equiped with everything we needed for our stay. There is a lovely big swimming pool. Chris and Lin the owners were very friendly and have a wealth of information, from best restaurants, local supermarkets, and shoe shops!!!! To the best car park in Assisi. We throughly enjoyed our stay
Wow - what a view!
We flew Ryan Air from Stanstead and collected a hire car at Perugia Airport. The apartment is approx a 35 min drive away. I would recommend a car for this location.
The apartment sits up in the hills in San Feliciano and the first thing you notice on arrival is the view - wow!
The apartment is entered via electronic gates and there is room for you to park a car outside the apartment entrance. It is spacious (there were 4 of us) and very well equipped. The bedrooms are a good size and having two bathrooms is a bonus. The owners have thought of just about everything you could need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The kitchen is really well stocked with equipment for those that wish to self cater, there is also a BBQ to use. The village has a small but well stocked supermarket, a butchers and a fresh fish shop. Larger supermarkets are within a 10/15 min drive. San Feliciano and nearby Passignano have a good choice of restaurants for eating out.
We found lots to do in the area and Lin & Chris have provided lots of useful information to help you plan your holiday. We took the ferry from the town over to Polvase Island and swam in the lake. The villages surrounding the lake are well worth a visit, Castiglione del Lago has a great market and an old castle to explore and on the way there, a visit to Michelle & Co is a must, the best patisserie we have ever been to and a real treat for both adults and children. Nearby Passignano has some amazing gelato stalls along the promenade. You can catch a train from nearby Terontola, we chose to go to Florence which was about 1 1/2 hours by train, the scenery en route is stunning and the price was very reasonable at 66 euros for a family of 4.
If relaxation is the order of the day the pool is beautifully kept, with plenty of sun loungers available and is much larger than other pools we have encountered when hiring accommodation. The deep end is fabulous for diving.
Lin & Chris have lots of knowledge about the area and were very happy to help with planning days out, answering questions and recommending things to see and do.
We hope to return again soon to discover more of this beautiful area.
From the Owner
“We fell in love with Italy many years ago, Umbria in particular is unspoilt and retains it character, it is away from the maddening crowds of the coast, the roads are easy to drive, and the location is good being on the borders of Tuscany.The Italian drivers are in the main curtious and not practicing f1 drivers so even the newest drivers to Europe would be comfortable.”
